Paulding Detectives and GBI Agents Investigate Murder on Warrenton Drive

(Paulding County, GA) Paulding Deputies responded to the Abbington Subdivision in southern Paulding County to investigate the murder of a Paulding County man Saturday night. Paulding Detectives partnered with Agents of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) to investigate the murder of Joshua Mitchell (B/M, 37 YOA). On Saturday, December 17, 2022, at approximately 9:40 PM, several residents of Warrenton Drive called Paulding E-911 to report hearing gunshots in the neighborhood. When Deputies arrived in the area, they located Mitchell laying in the driveway of 520 Warrenton Drive Douglasville, GA 30135 beyond help. It was preliminarily determined that Mitchell died as a result of several gunshot wounds to his body.
Mitchell’s body was taken to the GBI Crime Lab where an autopsy will be performed later this week. Detectives and Agents are diligently working to try and determine what occurred during this incident, however, thus far there are no suspects and no motive has been determined. Warrenton Drive is within the Abbington Subdivision in unincorporated southern Paulding County and even though it has a Douglasville address, it is still inside Paulding County.
Detectives and Agents would like to encourage anyone with information regarding this incident to please call the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Tip Line at (770) 443-3047 or send a message via the free Paulding Sheriff mobile app.
